About Scholarships

The Mid-Shore Community Foundation is committed to helping local students pursue post-secondary education and/or advance their careers. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have one of the largest scholarship programs in the region. Our scholarships support: students of Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot County; traditional students (high school students continuing to full-time degree and certificate programs) and nontraditional students (adults continuing their education through degree or certificate programs, accredited seminars, workshops, courses or customized training). Scholarships are awarded almost exclusively to students who demonstrate financial need. The Foundation offers two types of scholarships: Pooled Scholarships and Donor Involved Scholarships.

Pooled Scholarships

The Foundation administers a pooled scholarship program, which allows students to apply for multiple scholarships by completing one online application. The Foundation administers the application, selection and award process for those scholarships. To apply, complete the online application. The system allows you to create a login to access the application, which you can edit and save until you are ready to submit. The application period closes at midnight on February 14th. Apply Now ->

Donor Involved Scholarships

The Foundation provides oversight and administers the payment process for several scholarships whose application and selection processes are managed by external committees. Applicants should review the description of each scholarship to determine their eligibility. Learn More ->
